From the service to the ambience, we thoroughly enjoyed this place. It is expensive (so save for special occasions) and the portions were a little on the smaller side. The service was great though!

It is a tough place to review because the service is exceptional and the space is extraordinary but the food was a total disappointment. The service was attentive but also fun: the perfect balance of fine dining table technique and relaxed, warm delivery. The space is similarly well balanced with cozy, rustic charm dotted by elegant touches. Our table ordered... More

Service was excellent; ambiance is great! The caviar presentation was one of the best things I've ever eaten, but my 54-day-aged steak was ruined by being drowned in an au poivre sauce. It was tender and perfectly cooked, but I couldn't taste the steak. Wish I'd gone for the veal instead. Chocolate soufflé for dessert was good. Overall, an excellent... More

McCradys's service, atmosphere, and food was all fantastic. I ordered the burger, but it was like no burger I have ever tasted before. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the building

This is a cute restaurant in a typical Charleston brick lined alley. The food was fabulous and the atmosphere is very friendly. Loved the shrimp.

The menu was very limited. Although the service was excellent the food expensive and good in comparison to other restaurants in the area.

From the welcome to dessert and send off this dining experience was extraordinarily memorable. The staff, food, chef and ambience was exceptional throughout. This is a must visit while in Charleston.
